The event takes place from January 23 to 27 in Bangkok's Lumphini Park with five 'tourism villages' representing the regions of Thailand plus two additional zones. Also, each zone of the 'tourism village' comes with its own theme or stage for activities and performances.
Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) Governor Yuthasak Supasorn said that under the theme of environmentally-minded tourism, the Thailand Tourism Festival 2019 promotes green travel with the objective of presenting inspirational and attractive tourism products and services to stimulate more travel bookings to both major and emerging destinations.
"It also encourages visitors and Thai nationals to boldly step out and travel beyond traditional destinations and experience Thailand from a new perspective and point of view," he said.
